estimate needed to be reached by march was never an obama administration target they say. critics say this is another example of the white house moving the goal post again. chris stirewall is here and host of fox play. >> it was lowered to throw.3 million enrolled by the end of december and 2.1 enrolled. it was a projection, i ask you was the 7 million role or i fabrication and the government got derailed? >> it depends on what you think the law is intended to do. that is currently what is happening. the discussion in this country right now, what is the point of obama care? the point of obama care was that
10:02 am
it would bend the cost curve and make health care more affordable. it would be as washington likes to say a win- win for everybody. but as we get towards full implementation of the law and goes into full affect what the law is doing is insuring the uninsured and the democrats say is a worthy goal. you can't do the other thing. you can't bend the cost curve or change the dynamic on health insurance if they don't sign up even though more than 6 million policies were cancelled under the law. >> what about the white house pitch. how is it it say to the young and healthy ones. we are doing fine. obama care is open for business. come on in? the shift now for democrats is, how many seats can they protect
10:03 am
in the united states senate? they need to make sure the republicans don't win more than five societies in the election year. they are shifting to income and inquality clash conflict argument as they are rolling forward. and maybe we didn't get 7 million that we needed and a lot of the stuff we needed and maybe those young people never came through the dor. we provided health insurance to those who needed it and republicans want to take it away from them and that's the argument that senate democrats make. they are depriving needy people of health insurance. >> that would be the democrats argument how do the republicans combat this and here are solutions to what you are doing on your side of the aisle. >> if the administration is far off on the estimates as is shaping up to be now especially when it comes to the number of
10:04 am
young healthy people signing up for the law and becoming paying customers, if it is as far off as that. we will see the insurance rates go up in the country and 87 percent of americans insured in the employers to somebody in their family,ul will see rates sky rocket and at that moment, it will sews to matter what a politician or incumbent and those voting for obama care are voting on the way out. >> of course, you will have the customers and they will get the last say and we'll so more reviews and some from satisfied patrons and say look, this is a bunch of bait and switch. it remains to so how the law will play out. >> time will tell. this is the key. if not enough people seen up. and younger people who don'ts inially need it. if they don't get millions of those, this will blow up and the
10:05 am
cost continuium for everybody will be a serious problem and there is no way to go around that. that's what we are waiting to see when the administration is finally ready to share the data. in kentucky. 40 percent of the 116,000 enrollees were under 35. happy new year. >> happy new year. another obama care official resigning in the roll out of the debacle. oregon's health exchange director becoming the second state official to resign. he came under fire when the on line enrollment system failed to come live in october. technical problems forced oregonians to apply using paper. as of this week, the state's on line exchange has not launched. >> greg, a major union battle

10:07 am
elsewhere where it is not accepted. >> if the membership doesn't like it, they will reject it. it shouldn't be up to one person to decide, i am not going to put this to a vote. >> reporter: the local union held a rally and urging a no vote. what boeing is doing they say is extortion of the the current contract goes two more years. but in order to guarantee their jobs they want to switch pensions and a 401 k plan. securing production would mean tens of thousands of good paying jobs for years to come. politicians are urging a yes vote. >> it's all of the pressure our members are feeling from people with no personal stake in this. it couldn't be more personal for the members. they are looking at voting and having less take- home pay with
10:08 am
added health care cost and giving up a pension that is well funded. >> reporter: and one machinist we talked to likened it to a high stakes game of poker in which boeing is holding all of the cards. >> the voting will cut off at 6 o'clock local time. and so we'll look closer at the union fight unfolding today. what the ramifications of today's co vote might be. back now to the fox extreme weather on the deadly storm pounding the northeast. we'll go to jd. it is extreme? >> it is. local forecasters got it right. we had a couple of areas isolated of two feet of snow in

10:16 am
rigorous and published in the journal of science. a now years ago price- water house copper came up with the information that medicaid patients would use the er as people without insurance. this study confirms that. it involves harvard university and showed in 200 ate. when they gave more medicaid to people, they are 40 percent likely more to use the er and many more times when they didn't need it. we have ten percent less er's in the united states than we had ten years ago. if you go to the er, you don't want to see it clogged with people who have new insurance cards've any kind that don't need to be there. medicaid patients may not get in to see primary doctors like me. 50 percent of the specialist don't take medicaid and i might

10:18 am
people who don't need to be there. the hospitals suffer because they are paid less. and so it is not a pannacea. and half of obama care is medicaid. >> i want to transition if i can to an a p story that i saw. headline, adding a baby to a health plan is not easy, is that true? >> that's a great story, it points out what is going on once the website is fixed. all of this for the was trying to fix it, they didn't figure out how to sign a baby. great news, i can't get insurance to cover it because the websites don't have that flexibility. if there is a death or baby is born or divorce, you may not get it on the policy through the website. you have to call your broker. you have to call them up and say

10:33 am
art. two-thirds of uninsured americans have a negative experience with the obama care website. according to gall up. 59 percent said it is a negative experience and 39 percent said a positive experience. we have that right now. guy benson and julie, fox news contributors and we want to get into. this happy new years. >> happy new year. >> i want to start with you on this one, talk about the problems that folks are having with the health exchange. >> they are well documented from the technological issues to the sticker shock and access shock and dropped coverage. we have covered that on on fox and elsewhere. i would say what is interesting arthel about this poll of uninsured americans specifically, and what i find
10:34 am
fascinating is whether or not these samples include people who were uninsured last year prior to obama care implemented and versus the newly uninsured because of obama care. the administration said 2.1 million americans selected plans through the obama care exchanges. that is an inflated number and not credible for a number of reasons. 2.1 million. and media reports indicate 4- 6 million americans have lost their coverage. starting now here in january, because of the law, that is a double or triple the rate of people managing to sign up. i would love to know how the break down works in the polls when they are asking uninsured people if you are uninsured before obama care. >> the poll is made up of interviews with 1500 uninsured americans including 450 who reported visiting the health
10:35 am
exchanges. what is your take on this, julie? >> i can talk about guys. i don't agree of the 4 or 6 million uninsured on obama care. you are not talking about permanently insured thanks to obama care. they had cancelled plans and immediately got new plans. that is one. and two, go to sign up for any bureaucratic thing like obama care is like the dnb. the reality is, you have to look at how many people have health care, as guy points out. the administration said over 2 million in the exchanges and 4 million through medicare expansion and so you are having millions of americans despite the unpleasant experience of obama care and website are now insured. that is the metric. and the real metric will be on the end of march when the
10:36 am
enrollment period is over. you might have a bad insurance in the dmv but you get a driver's license. and here you get health insurance. >> would you like obama care to fail? >> i don't think whethery want something to fail. i think based on the evidence it is failing and the promises they are making to the american people are not kept for millions of folks. julie can say they have 2.1 million people signed up. 4 to 6 million people thrown off plans, they may not be permanently uninsured. but they are fewer americans insured today than last year. and one of the ponent of this is so great signing up and getting coverage which is what is important. there is another poll. >> let me jump in.
10:37 am
i know you have a lot of polls and i get bored to be honest with you on the polls, just being honest. would you say, julie, in fairness, i asked guy why you want obama care to fail. julie, do you want obama care to live if you will? it is the law, but do you want it to succeed at all in >> i want it to succeed. if it is successfully implemented and that is a question mark if so. but if it were, millions and tens of millions of americans will have access to health care and that is something regardless of democrat or republican or partisan, we should want that for fellow americans. it is not whether i want it to suck sowed or republicans want it to fail. we should all want to be having access to health care. >> so guy, i don't want your mom
10:38 am
to call me and i cut you off. i will give you the last 20 seconds on this one. >> of course, we can all come together and get as many people quality affordable care as possible. that is a goal. but it is not an excuse for poorly crafted legislation that was solid with incorrect promises and lies. separate the outcomes versus the intentions. intentions are not everything in life. >> guy benson, and julie, thank you for bringing the a game to the table. >> you don't want his mom to call. >> she is a nice lady. >> you don't want to go there. >> deer season, did you know, it is underway in the nation's capitol, but many will be disappointed because it is not
10:39 am
open to local hunters. instead the national park service is bringing out the big guns and sharp shooters hired to call in the deer population that has gone buck wild. molly is live from rock croak, in washington d.c. molly. >> reporter: yes, greg, rock creek, the park behind me is a 12 mile park in washington d.c., as you are saying sharp shooters will be working in the over night hours until the end of march or until they call the herd around the nation's capitol. it is a second year to stem the deer heard. they want 77 deer to around 15 or 20 deer per square mile. the over population is causing the deer to venture in neighborhoods and rush hour traffic looking for food. they say the deer is depleting
10:40 am
too much local vegetation. >> right now, deer are eating all of the tree seedlings that grow and if new plants and trees can't grow, the forest can't regenerate. >> and the naeshs support the program. but others want nonlethal means to prevent the deer from continuing to reprous. >> there is other options. they are just trying to get the easy way of getting out. >> you are not wounding them with a bow and arrow and not wounding them by untrained shotters and they do have to be cleared out. >> it is not just here, department of agriculture sharp shotters are controlling the deer population in other parks and cities. here locally deer meat that comes from the shooting will be begin to food banks and homeless
10:41 am
shelters. greg. >> you only showed pictures of cute deer in that story, and we are sitting here, oh, they are such cute bambideer and stuff. >> you only showed cute deer. >> reporter: we'll try less cute ones for you. >> find ugly deer would you? >> reporter: i will work on it. >> like the one that comes in my backyard and eats my shrubs. >> people get frustrated by it and come up to the doors and come out in the middle of the traffic. >> they do. my wife gets upset about it and that makes me upset. you know how that works. >> molly, thank you very much. >> all right. i will turn to commercial break. >> meanwhile federal officials slamming the editorial that call for clemency for edward snowden
10:42 am
and why the times got it wrong. >> russian president vladimar putin can do more than ride horses and play hockey. don't you know. we'll tell you about the olympics ven u.
10:43 am
10:44 am
10:45 am
>> welcome bavenlth russian president vat vat putin hitting the slopes a head of next month's olympics just days after vowing to a nilalate the terrorist attacking the games. he was at a ski resort near the olympics skying ven u. this follows twin sowicide bombings 145 mills northeast of the area. >> russia in the meantime is
10:46 am
sheltering edward snowden. he was the topic of a new york times editorial that called for him to have clemency and pardon because of the value allegedly of what he revealed about u.s. government spying. he proved that government officials, this is a quote. are you tinily broken the law and claim that has federal officials angry. doug burns jones us. and you know, i read, judge, that the federal judge in new york. >> judge pauly's decision. he said there is no right to privacy when you provide information to a third party. is he right about that? >> i think he is. this is a political dust up at
10:47 am
this point. the new york times editorial was interesting, and i would sign on board with the idea that 100 percent, is that somebody may have done a criminal offense, but then argued in it is in the larger public good. two federal judges apparently granted interim relief and saying that the program may violate the law. judge pauly said it does not. the problem with the times editorial is the language that they just read that said it is illegal. i am not so sure it is correct. >> and doug, thank you very much. >> the judge in dc had it right, greg. that is who the times relied on. and they generally, the new york times served as a media pr firm. and that has to add salt in the wound. >> look the times indicate that the nsa program violated
10:48 am
a particular federal privacy law. and that's what the judge in dc found. i have to believe that there is a strength in that. we know it will be ending up before the u.s. supreme court. and there will be a compromise reached in it. but the idea that the administration intentionally went out and violated the law. this administration was know deep in benghazi. and here you have a guy, who is not even graduating from college. >> right. >> who claims that the nsa violated the constitution. and yet edward snowden, there is a picture of him. he's a guy who thumbs his nose at the constitution and the establishment of course to the criminal justice system. he pled it. >> here is a guy who causes you know, academic elites at one
10:49 am
party and raises the glasses and said he is a hero and others saying he is a criminal. and everybody has the competing arguments. but the reality is he committed a crime no question in my opinion. >> he is not a whistle blower. he is not one. and i want to go to lynn stewart i interviewed her over the years and represented the blind sheik who aided in the first terrorist attacks and now released because she's doing. is that the right -- david let me go to you on this. is that the right decision? >> apparently she has breast cancer and has approximately 18 months to live. but remember what she did. she was retained by the blipped shiek, and passes it to
10:50 am
a terrorist group and much more involved than we have time to get into. she was convicted of providing material information to a terrorist group and aiding and abetting an islamic terrorist group and providing them and prompting them to attack egypt. she was convicted and given ten to attack egypt. her release date is 2018. i don't know man, this is a tough one. if there was somebody who should be denied maybe this is the one. >> this has a back story greg, she got 28 months originally and said quote i could do this ta standing on my had. ab and the judge said, oh really and gave her the longer sentence. >> you feel badly and again, i've interviewed her over the

to months beginning after december 31st, 2013. general, shall and you learned this in law school is a mandatory word. it is not changeable. you cannot change it. under that reading of the law, that hat been changed by the president illegally? >> as a former texas supreme court justice myself i can tell you that courts apply that word shall to mean that it provides the executive branch no latitude in how they are going to apply the law. this is one of the ways that they are violating the law as written by congress and violating the constitution in trying to aplay their own interpretation in applying the law. >> no one hout standing
11:03 am
illegally to sue until yesterday. as you know, you don't have standing until you have actual harm not theoretical harm. do you envision lawsuits that say wait a minute, this is a president that changed the law to benefit some to the disadvantage of others? >> well, you make a keen point, and that is before a lawsuit can be filed, someone has to be injured. that letter that we sent to the secretary was a steppingstone step that the attorneys general are taking as a step towards maybe -- we are considering a lawsuit against the administration. we are looking for the right entity for the individuals
11:04 am
themselves. i believe someone will be filing a challenge to the way that obama care is being enforced. >> you have to find somebody who has experienced actual harm. that shouldn't be hard because there are tens of millions of americans who have experienced the broken promise of you get to keep your health care plan and they have lost it and their premium premiums have gone down. so i think it is going to be easy to find individuals who have standing to bring a claim in challenging the way it is
